Animal Sciences Graduate Student Association

The Animal Sciences Graduate Student Association (ASGSA) is active in promoting career development, academic success, and social interaction between graduate students and faculty. Each year ASGSA sponsors a number of events including the professional seminar series which brings in speakers from academia, industry, and other career options to the department; social events such as tailgates, happy hours, and the Annual Cook-off, and fundraisers that support student travel grants and other activities of the organization. Feel free to email any questions to the board and we hope you join us when you come to UF!
